Child Development: Build Fine Motor Skills With This Fun Summertime Activity!

Summer is the perfect season to make playtime also a time of growth for kids. Turn summertime into learning time! Don't spend money on handwriting books to improve fine motor skills when you can increase small muscle strength by planning fun activities instead! 

Buy water guns and toys and have an outside water battle! Pulling the trigger over and over will work the same muscles kids need for writing. For a fun variation, put a few drops of food coloring on a white paper plate, hang it on a tree and let them have target practice! Have refreshing fun and be creative all at once!
